Webster The Tyndall Target receives material supplied by Camp Newspape r Service, War Dept., E. 42nd St., N.Y.C, The credited material may not be republished without permission from C.N.S. THE NEW TARGET This, as you must have noticed, is a new and different Target. We hope you like it. We've added a lot of new features. We're trying to get more news in the paper. 1 re going to use more p ictures henceforth. And we've enlarged the paper size. This, being the first new-style issue, was put out only after a lot of perspiration had poured over the staff's collective brow. There were numerous mechanical problems which had to be solved. And so if you find a few boners please bear with us until things are running smoothly, which we believe will b e soon. We want to record the births and marriages and deaths, the squadron parties, t he promotions, the sports events. And we hope to give you information on what Tyndall Field graduates are doing in the war theatres. We intend to print authoritative dope on how new law s and regulations affect the G.I. Some of the stuff that we will print, we'll confess right now, will be swiped from other publications. We'll give the other publications full cred i t of course but if we see a cartoon, a joke, or something else that we think you d like i n another cam p p aper we intend to "borrow" it for the Target. As for our own stuff, we have several new, to the Target, features to entertain you. The long-popular "Taler" will co ntinue with the latest "dirt about you and you r fello w man, or woman a s the case may be. Speaking of wome n, as who doesn't, we hope to toss 1n a pictur e of a nice-looking one now and then. If you're just a Pfc., we have g i ven you an opportunity to r aise hell with somebody We have on our staff P M Nickles, a nice guy who is just a private and can t talk back to an ybo d y Nick will be on hand bright and early Monday morning to receive all com plaints in his new job a s whippin g boy. Seriously though, we earnestly invite your com ment s pro o r co n. If you don't like the new Target or some particular feature of it, tell the editorial staff a bout it. And if you do like it---we won't ob if you tell everybody about it. Interviews by SAM! OF Photos by lJPGlURCH THIS WEEK1S QUESTION: 1100 YOU OBJECT TO YOUR GIRL BACK HOME GOING OUT WITH OTHER MEN?" THE ANSWERS: SGT. WILLI A/rl M. FIINES, Sifnal CorjJs Office: "I don't have a back home. But he satd if he did have one he wouldn't object to her out once in a while. XT. JAMES H. 01GHAD'f, Personnel Office: "No, I wouldn't object. I don't think she ex pects me to sit around the barracks all the time nor that she would want me to sit at home." S l XT. FR.4NK FIORN, Draftinf Department: "No.' Wouldn't it make a lot of difference if I did? Bestdes I'd consider it a comPliment. S!SGT. GEORGE Fl. FOSTER, Sisrnal Office: "I wouldn't object to her out now and then to a dance or an invitation to a party. PAGE TI\D Pinney Antes By BILL PINNEY Well, we've been through the induction center, have coorple ted our basic training: and have been given an assignment by the Army. After 30 years service we vlan to retire if they have made a soldier of us. Our basic training sergeant says it will take considerably longer. "If," the sarge told us at Fort EusU s, "the Army had just l,ooo guys like you we'd lose this war." 'If,' we told the sarge at Fort Eustis, 'the enemy didn't have one man like you we would n't be at war.' For that we done the manual of arms with a mop for 3 days. We started out in the artill ery and trained to fight as 1 infantrymen by day and anti aircraftmen at night. They called us the "Moonlight Cav alry." Now we are at Tyndall Field and they tell us it's a Flex-ible Gunnery School. Up at Fort Eustis they took the at titude that only the men were flexible. To prove H, they strapped a pack across our back and took a window off our front. They cut our gross tonnag e from 188 to 1 56 and reduced our circum ference from 38 to 32. Theyl even had us touching tne floor with 8Ur hands .without bending our lmees. They put corns in our hands and took creaks out of our joints. And it is sure nice not to have to wait for someone else to tell you you need a shoe shine. Our Front Cover This week's cover comes from the vohuninous scrapbook of Si Upchurch of the TJn dall Field Base Photo Section. The photogenic mcdel is Miss Jo Ellen Vickers, of the Personnel department. Miss Vickers is a native of Panama City and has been a civilian attache at the post since June of last year.

nar1es If ycu've wondered why our outfit is called the "Canaries" just attend next Friday's Rec Hall dance. We'll be hosts, with our most stmming boys as lovely Earl Carroll Beauties. If anyone wonders how such a bevy of performers was accunu lated, here's how. At induction stations the men were liD wise enough to give their hobbies such as singing, dancing, playing the piano, etc. The dope remains on their service records. Our performers will be sing ing not only fortheir supner but also for their lives and freedom. Capt. Canzoneri has threatened dire consequences for any man who fails to per fonn in the capac1 ty he put in his service record. His crime will be fraudulent enlistment. -Cpl. ,Joe Mastroenj ........
